A clash between Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan and Hindus who were offering alms to one of their gods left one man dead and 20 people injured in northern India.

Officials said Muslims offering morning prayers on the second day of Ramadan were upset by devotional singing by Hindus who were on their way to a temple for a regular ceremony offering water and milk to Lord Shiva.
